To have another child or not…that is the question.

Some days I’m like, “hell yes, bring it on”.  On other days I think “are you fucking crazy?”

I really don’t know and I don’t know how to know.  My first experience was so much harder than I could’ve ever imagined.  Somet...

Things my nearly-2 year old has lost his mind about in the last week (in no particular order):

  • Putting his shoes/shirt/shorts/pajamas on

  • Taking his shoes/shirt/shorts/pajamas off

  • Putting on his left shoe before his right

  • Putting on his right shoe befo...

We’re done.  It’s over, and I didn’t even see it coming.  I mean I knew the day was drawing near that Orrie would no longer be interested in breastfeeding.  He is 20 months old.  I had determined that my “cut off” was 2 years so I knew we were close, but somehow it fee...

I’ve noticed that a lot of things I’ve written lately have been on the more serious side, so I thought I’d share something a little lighter:

I spent the weekend with eleven strangers. Women whom, prior to the weekend, were just profiles on a Facebook page dedicated to our retreat together.  After flying from Chicago to Palm Springs, CA I got into my rental car and started driving toward the desert surrounde...

I am in an airplane flying 600 mph away from my husband and son, flying toward a weekend devoted entirely to myself.

Shortly after I found out about my cystocele diagnosis that resulted from Orrie’s complicated birth I found myself searching. Searching for resources,...

I went to a yoga class last night.  It was the first time in months that I had set foot on my mat.  It was a trap music, care-free, meant-to-be fun class with proceeds going to charity, but as class wrapped up and lied in savasana I felt my eyes fill with tears until t...

“Today women can have it all”—a sentiment proclaimed more and more as women have stepped up and said, “We want more than domestic life”.  We want careers, we want personal advancement, we want ambition, and as much of a feminist as I am and as much as I want to believe...

It's a two-beer kind of night.  Since Monday my kid has been blowing up and melting down at the drop of the hat.  Tonight we reached a critical mass.  Bedtime spiraled into an uncontrollably, hysterically crying child who refused to have his teeth brushed and hit me fo...
